Beyond Stanislavsky: The Psycho-Physical Approach to Actor Training

£2.99

Product description

From the back cover: At the time of Stanislavsky's death, one of the most important things he was working on was an advanced approach to actor training which became known as Psycho-Physical Acting.

Previously he had taught that truthful performance sprang from the actor's imagination and experience. Late in life Stanislavsky realised that physical actions can induce emotions just as much as the other way round. This is what lies at the heart of Psycho-Physical Acting.

Though well-known - and much taught - in Russia, Psycho-Physical Acting is in its infancy in the rest of the world. Bella Merlin has studied under three of the best teachers in Russia; this book is the fruit of her time there.

Foreword by Max Stafford-Clark
